AC/DC under fire for damaging Wrigley Field


AC/DC under fire for damaging Wrigley Field

If the Cubs don't make the playoffs, you may be able to blame the band AC/DC.

The band may have shaken Chicago all night long, but it also is now being accused by the team of damaging the playing field, Sports Illustrated reported.

Cubs’ manager Joe Maddon said the infield was damaged during the concert, blaming the band for troubles the baseball team has been having at its home field. 

"Since the AC/DC concert we've had a little bit of trouble," Maddon said. "I don't know if they were out there taking ground balls in 9-inch heels." 

The comment came after second baseman Starlin Castro had an error in the Cubs' win against the Milwaukee Brewers Monday. Maddon blamed it on a bad hop, ESPN reported.

"It's not even," Castro told the Chicago Tribune. "Some places are long, some are short. It's not like it used to look."

The Cubs grounds crews replaced the entire outfield with new sod after the concert, but there have still been complaints about the new grass, ESPN reported.

The Cubs had three errors during Monday's game, the Sporting News reported.

Giants and Dodgers stadiums play host to AC/DC on Friday and Monday, The Washington Post reported.
